Over the last few weeks there have been a lot of rumors regarding talents who could be on their way out of WWE, and Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that Mike and Maria Kanellis asked to be released from their contracts.

Maria later denied that story, but the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that that story was accurate, and they requested to be released long before the story broke.

According to the WON, Mike and Maria Kanellis asked to be released several weeks ago and WWE turned them down.

They haven’t been used much since then.

Mike and Maria Kanellis joined the SmackDown Live brand at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view in 2017, but Maria had to take time off in order to focus on being a mom, and Mike has struggled to find a regular spot on TV.
